Summer decorating is so much fun — it’s a great excuse to update your decor. Summer activities can take you inside and out this season, and that means you’ll have plenty of spaces to decorate. The key to a summer makeover is light fabrics, bright colors and even a touch of beach-inspired decor. You can update your home for the season with just a few accessories or go big and add a stunning outdoor dining set. Most summer-inspired decor can be stored away when it’s time for autumn decorating. That keeps your decor fresh when the season is back next year. Here are 10 of our favorite ideas for making the most of your summer at home:
1. Summer Decorating Means Colorful Outdoor Entertaining
We love summer entertaining, especially when the party moves outside. Choose a comfortable outdoor seating set that encourages conversation and lingering. Bright outdoor pillows and throws for chilly summer nights are a must. If you’re creating a space that ties your indoor decor to the outdoors, choose accessories that fit into the color palette you already have in your home.
2. Switch to a Summer Duvet Cover
A new duvet cover can makeover your bedroom in an instant. Look for light fabrics like linen and cotton for comfortable bedding even when the weather heats up. Beach-inspired patterns and colors (like blue and aqua) are perfect for summer decorating. Even if you aren’t embracing a full coastal theme in your home, you can add touches of beach style in any room when you work within your color palette.
3. Get Fresh Style With Macramé and Crafty Summer Accessories
Maybe we’re just reminiscing about summer crafts, but macrame and handmade accessories feel like a perfect fit for the season. Mixing handcrafted decor in natural colors and materials with boho or contemporary furnishings creates a relaxed summer style. Add softness to your bedroom or living room by replacing framed art with macrame and woven wall hangings.
